Roger Smith a.k.a. Roger H. Smith and Ironing a.k.a. Andrew Chadwick have put a delightful, minimal feast to my ears owing to the fact that thye mastered the use of limitations to the full. What might be a deceiful means which is overused within the conceptual genre here is a conscious choice of weapon which proves to be a nuclear blast.
Chefkirk gives a radiating and resonating ambience of no-input whizz in a way that it isn't overloaded with distortion, just gives what it should.
Ironing delivers a set of micro-tonal outburst which has a multi dimensional feel to it.
Overall view has a very positive output - rich, nicely flavoured dish with surprises. Yummy!!!! My notorious kindda stuff...
